  • QR code and link will take you to a short interview with GISuser.comFrom Little Rock, ARKidsOutdoors#goodtimes
  • Change is occurring all around us. When was the first version of IE introduced?When was the first version of FireFox introduced?When was the first version of a slippy map introduced?When was the first version of GoogleMaps introduced?
  • So are we stuck in a box?It is easy to do what we know.
  • Challenge for us: Not becoming distracted, but paying attention to key trends Story of a 5th grader
  • Because every presentation needs an Einstein quote <sarcasm>Awareness is key- Imagination is critical
  • Next Release, Technology, Programs, Next Big Thing, Hype, Media
  • Strategy for Putting Arkansas on the Map Branding Set informal roles / responsibilities (counties create data / AGIO integrates and distributes) AGIO uses numerous data sources to aid in better decision making
  • We believe ubiquitous use of data results in better data.We believe providing and use of data results in economic opportunities and aid in disaster response. We believe data should be available in all the places people (normal people) go to look for it.
  • Obviously not near as significant, but I do have a dream.
  • Or at least a bunch of ideas on a white board.Note: My ideas look nothing like this… I barely survived basic Algebra classGraphic courtesy of Bert Granberg in Utah- Used trigonometry to determine availability of satellites for broadband.
  • Consider all of the sensors available (satellite, phone, wifi, stream gauges….)Consider all the points of data collection (Facebook, Twitter, FourSquare, Waze, Search Engines, OSM, MapMaker, Esri, local, state, federal)It is all overwhelming if we attempt to see, hear, interpret, or use all of the parts of the puzzle. This graphic is actually organized compared to the reality.
  • As the sensor and data collections begin to be combined the puzzle starts to come together, even if not crystal clear.We can begin to see how things interrelate or at least could interrelate.
  • Need to considerGetting on the channel your audience is tunings into. (listen, interact, synthesis information, respond) Filtering the information
  • Currently information flows through a fire hose
  • Humans are actually pretty good at filtering vast amounts information visually. Ever been in an ESPN sports bar and been able to watch a single ball game?Consider how this might be used with game theory or taking advantage of something like Kinect
  • I am a fan of simple. Often the very ‘simple’ is quite complex
  • So if you want to monitor a state network you watch alerts come up on a screen that is basically just text.
  • Or you build a workflow that allows the same user to visualize the information
  • Interestingly enough; most network outages are related to power outages.
  • Another look at the same event. Weather related event in 2009
  • Simple examples of making information manageable.Broadband Availability for a single congressional district in AR
  • What if you want to map a state budget? Bit overwhelming if not broken down into understandable chunks.Why pie charts? It is what the viewer is use to seeing.
  • Complex (to an executive) satellite imagery (Spot or RADARSAT)Simple examples of making complex information manageable.Flooding
  • Tweets from AR Highway Department
  • Flooding- Often times the answer is not complex! This map was maintained in PowerPoint throughout the flooding event. It serves the purpose.
  • I really like this example. A bunch of pictures and some video shared via a single kmz file.Totally accessible, no hardware/software required.Big point- Available to desktop and mobile users.
  • Curious
  • Currently in my view. Working on…What does a state platform look like (architecture/cost) in a physically distributed environmentLidar- storing, distributing and by-products
  • Currently in my peripheral view for various reasons. No specific comments
  • Currently in my peripheral view for various reasons.
  • I still find this to be true.

    40. 40. Do you think the GIS community is playing a significant enough role in planning Next Gen 911 (vs NENA, Providers and CAD vendors)? Do you think NG911 will be able to survive catastrophic events (i.e. Joplin, Japan, Haiti, cyber-attacks, etc)?<br />
    41. 41. What are your thoughts on ‘cloud type’ infrastructures?<br />
    42. 42. Thoughts on OSM?<br />
    43. 43. Thoughts on Esri Community Basemap?<br />
    44. 44. GIS, 10 years from now, looks like...<br />
    45. 45. Who are the 'up and coming' players (companies, organizations, people) we need to start watching? Who are we wasting our time with?<br />
    46. 46. What are your thoughts on the intersection between traditional GIS and new technologies that seem to be arising every day?<br />
    47. 47. What are your thoughts on the intersection between traditional GIS, 3D and BIM?Building Information Model???<br />
    48. 48. Is Open Source a viable option for government agencies that need to maintain "official" or "authoritative" data.<br />
    49. 49. Why should government use social media tools?<br />
    50. 50. Do you use any social media tools? Why?<br />
    51. 51. What are your thoughts on the use of Google Maps, Bing and other mapping APIs by government? Pros and cons? Pitfalls?<br />
    52. 52. As mapping/GIS becomes more ubiquitous with many products geared towards non-technical users (Google Earth), how do you see that impacting the GIS profession and professionals?<br />
    53. 53. I've looked at your slide-share re: mapping a state budget. I'm curious what the impetus was to produce such a map, if the results were what you expected, and if the final product had any impact on state or local policy.<br />
    54. 54. What trends are you seeing with respect to expert communicators who are not GIS pros being part of consulting teams? <br />
    55. 55. As spatial data become more available to a broader variety of end users, how concerned are you about quality and appropriate use?<br />
    56. 56. Is GIS a profession, or a software tool?<br />
    57. 57. Have GIS user groups passed their heyday -- much like the PC user groups of the 80s?<br />
    58. 58. How do you explain to friends, family, or the uninitiated what GIS is and its impact?<br />
    59. 59. Thoughts on MARXAN and MARZONE and their utility for decision support/alternative scenarios compared to other GIS software (ESRI etc.)<br />http://goo.gl/HKSlT<br />
    60. 60. What advice would you give someone thinking about getting into the GIS field?What are the 3 main skills someone needs to be successful in today's (and tomorrow's) geospatial workforce?<br />
    61. 61. I have heard a lot of "talk" about location-based marketing, but are you seeing any trends toward consulting firms or their clients allowing non-GIS experts who are experts in communication being invited into the tent to collaborate in new ways?<br />
    62. 62. Who are your favorite “presenters” in the business and how important is the presentation to clients in terms of getting contracts? Best practices?Good Presenter @pmbatty<br />http://goo.gl/URp7X<br />
    63. 63. Do you have recommendations about how best incorporate the expanding use of smart phones' spatial technology applications into governmental practices?<br />
    64. 64. In these challenging times with shrinking budgets and competing priorities, how do you keep spatial technology relevant in the minds of key stakeholders?<br />
    65. 65. Are we asking the right questions?<br />
